If so he'd better buff up the old resume, because the Villahermosa P.D. is being flooded with applications:
Alarmed by glimpses of sweaty citizens in the buff, the city council in the southeastern city of Villahermosa has adopted a law banning indoor nudity, officials confirmed Wednesday.(Thanks to Zemblan patriot J.M. for the link.)
The regulation, which takes effect on Jan. 1, calls for as much as 36 hours in jail or a fine of 1,356 pesos ($121) for offenders in the Tabasco state capital, 410 miles east of Mexico City.
"We are talking about zero tolerance … for a lack of morality," said city councilwoman Blanca Estela Pulido of the Revolutionary Institutional Party, which governs the state and city . . . .
"I have no idea how you detect the naked. You'd have to have a big operation to try to bring it under control," [opposition party councilman Rodrigo Sanchez] added.
